Uttam To Raise Lawyer Couple’s Murder Issue In Parliament
Hyderabad, March 9 (Maxim News): Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N. Uttam Kumar Reddy on Tuesday announced that he would raise the issue of lawyer couple’s murder in the ongoing session of the Parliament.
Addressing a protest dharna of advocates at Dharna Chowk , Indira Park, Reddy strongly condemned Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao for not responding to the demand for probe through Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the brutal murder of advocates, Vaman Rao and his wife Nagamani, in Peddapalli on February 17. He said CM KCR has turned so insensitive that he did not condemn the murder of lawyer couple. Since the accused persons in the murder case are reportedly close to the Chief Minister, the local police was not carrying out the investigation in an appropriate manner.
Uttam reiterated the allegations that the murders was the result of a larger conspiracy hatched by TRS-backed sand mafia and these murders were directly to the custodial death of a Dalit, Seelam Rangaiah, in Manthani police station of Ramagundam Police Commissionerate. He said Vaman Rao and Nagamani were eliminated to hush up many other illegal activities being carried out with the backing of ruling party leaders. He said that KCR Government has handed over the control of the entire Telangana to ‘sand, land, mine and wines’ mafia.
The TPCC Chief said that the Congress party has already met Governor
Dr. Tamilisai Soundarajan seeking a court-monitored CBI probe into the murders. He said he would raise the issue in the ongoing session of the Parliament. Further, he assured the advocates that he would take up their demands for implementation of Advocates Protection Act, Review of CrPC 41, payment of stipend to junior advocates. (Maxim News)
